The Griswold and Gunnison Confederate Revolver was produced in Griswoldville, Georgia between 1862-1864. It's predecessor was known as the Griswold & Grier (which is really the same gun, just different markings), but the designer, Samuel Griswold, later rechristened it as the Griswold & Gunnison, naming it after his business partner, Arvin Nye Gunnison. The revolver is a .36 caliber copied from the Colt 1851 Navy. It has a 7 ½" part octagon, part round barrel. The frame and trigger guard is brass. The grips are one piece walnut. They are marked with a serial number along with assembly numbers, inspector’s mark and benchmarks. Approximately 3,700 revolvers were manufactured before production ended when Griswoldville was destroyed by Captain Frederick S. Ladd and his men of the 9th Michigan Volunteer Cavalry Regiment during the Battle of Griswoldville (the first of Sherman's March to the Sea) on November 20, 1864.
